With the wide receiver pool already looking deep, the Buffalo Bills witnessed a show this weekend when the wide receivers started their drills. 

Nine wide receivers were able to run a sub 4.4 second 40-yard dash this season, which means that speed will no longer be a rare commodity. Along with speed, plenty of receivers have mixed that with elite route running. 

Here are the top 10 times for the 40-yard dash.

 

Marquise Goodwin – 4.27
Tavon Austin – 4.34
Ryan Swope – 4.34
Josh Boyce – 4.38
Kenny Stills – 4.38
Cordarrelle Patterson – 4.42
Corey Fuller – 4.43
Denard Robinson – 4.43
Justin Hunter – 4.44
Markus Wheaton – 4.45
 
Strength was also on display, with plenty of receivers benching 15 reps and showcasing their ability to beat the press. Missouri's TJ Moe led the way with 26 reps, despite running a 4.74 dash. Moe also led the way in the 3-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle. 
 
The receivers look strong in the draft this season, and plenty of mock drafts say Buffalo may agree early in the draft. 
 
Right now, a few drafts have the Bills taking Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who is widely thought of as the best receiver in the upcoming draft. 
 
The NFL Draft begins April 25. The Bills currently hold pick 8.
